I love that nobody reacted to the Inhumans film getting pulled a couple weeks ago to make room for Indy 5, and now again no one cares that it's been pulled altogether.

 

STOP TRYING TO MAKE THE INHUMANS A THING, MARVEL

Agents of SHIELD poisoned the well.

I'm excited for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 and Black Panther.  Obviously The Infinity Wars too but still two years out!

I'm less excited for another Thor and another Spider-Man film especially seeing how it's starring more Avengers. Can we have one movie where Spider-Man doesn't have to share screen time with them? It's like Marvel forgot who the A+ character is.

We've had 5 movies where he hasn't shared screen time with them...

not in the mcu.  I'd prefer a Spider-Man story that is lower in scale and more personal than an Avengers co-op but we'll see.

So there are two MCU movies between the Infinity Wars films? Wonder how that will work? I just assumed it was going to be like, say, The Hunger Games where Pt.2 is a direct continuation of where Pt.1 leaves off. Is that not the case?

No, according to the Russos, the Pt. 1/Pt. 2 business is a little misdleading.  These will be two different films, filmed separately, so it's unlikely there will be a direct cliffhanger where the action resumes relatively quickly from the first film.

Black Panther opening in February seems like a very WWE move

I'm assuming it's because Feb. is Black History Month.

If it is a WWE move, I expect T'Challa to have a Pretty Ricky gimmick.

Um, I think I want to withdraw my objection. 

I'm currently rereading Christopher Priest's very good run writing the Black Panther comic.  The series is about 20 years old, but Marvel just started collecting it into trade paperbacks last fall.  Priest did a great job exploring the heritage of the character and his country - up until sales started to fall, and Marvel Editorial decided the way to boost interest in the book was replace the main character with a biracial, borderline corrupt cop who lived in Harlem (Priest refers to the character as "Vin Diesel" and claimed in an interview he pitched the new direction of the book as a parody of Spider-man in the hope that the pitch would be so ridiculous Marvel would relent and let him keep writing T'Challa as the Panther).

This sounds like something Vince would come up with.

Also, considering comic-book Sam Wilson's backstory, I don't think I'd want to make him my flagship minority character, lol.

If Rhodey and Sam guest in Black Panther, it would really drive the point home, right?

Opening the film in February isn't such a terrible move.  Films can have success in February now.

I wonder if the traditional calendar is still valid in 2016? Seems like "blockbusters" arent just for summer anymore (which starts in May now).

The only 2 months of the year that don't have a $200+ million earner are January and September (although if you adjust for inflation, I'm sure you could find a few from way back).  And I'm sure they'll figure out a way to conquer those one day, too.

I ended up seeing Deadpool in theaters but I didn't bother to get presales because I knew the weather would probably be shitty.  Weather concerns and school in session are still factors in those months. I wish maybe Marvel had a little more faith in Black Panther.  They give it a February release and now if it "underperforms" compared to something like Ant-Man they are going to be "see! we were right!" and he'll never get another solo.

Opening in Feb is not a bad move at all - and they have three that year so they are spacing them out.

It just so happens they are opening the Black Superhero movie in February

You have a strange view of how businesses work.
